Usually, I am on my way to work right now.
But it has been snowing all day here in so.cal.
There is two feet of snow outside right now can't even get out of my driveway.
If I wasn't mistake I would think that I was in Denver.
Sure is a beautiful night here in Cal.

Mike

Ha, there is only 4 inches of the white stuff on the ground here, and today it was 40 degrees out. But in the mountains it is another winter storm warning with up to 2 feet on top of the 3 feet that they got in the last few days. Vail ski area is claiming 52 inches of new snow between Sunday and yesterday.

I saw some camera shot of Cajon Pass on Fox somewhere around the Outpost and you could just barely make-out several lanes of traffic sitting dead-stopped in a blizzard from a few hundred feet away. They said that the pass was closed.

Better get some skis or get your sled (snowmobile) out of the barn!

Mark,

Skis or snowmobile...I don't even have snowboots or gloves. I am lucky to have a coat.
They had the 15 closed down today from the 91 freeway to Stoddard Wells road just north of Victorville.
On Monday when I was at work it rained and I saw 11 diferent accidents on the freeways. 6 were single car accidents of people going to fast and hydroplaning right off the freeway.

Heck Mike, an 18-wheeler is just a big snowmobile!!! Just hang a couple of sets of singles and you're off!!! But Joel's right, you need a pair of Sorel's, a good pair of gloves, and one of those insulated hats that they sell at the gas stations in Minnesota, eh? I've got a real nice ski parka that doesn't fit anymore that I would let you borrow too. It is size 2X. It is probably good for -25F. And don't forget a half-gallon of Howe's so that the diesel fuel doesn't freeze, maybe some airline antifreeze too!!!

I saw heavy snow on I-15 in Vegas on the late news too!!! They already had several inches down when the film was shot.

Loaded semis will drive in 3 feet of water, and maybe two feet of snow, I know!!!

Good luck tomorrow. Do you have a snow shovel or maybe some driveway salt???

I always have to laugh when it happens down there,

Mark

Mike:

If you should suffer any severe withdrawl symptoms, please DO let me know. I have so much of this stuff right now, and lots more on the way Friday and Sunday, that I'd be happy to send you every last, freekin' flake!

And driving in this stuff is like having a near death experience twice a day! @#$%$##!@#!@%^#$^%!#$!!!!!!^$^%#$!%#!

Snow! Bah humbug!

Jim, north of the border. East of Toronto, not quite in the snow belt but bloody close enough!

Jim,

No thanks this is more than enough.
If I want more I will just pack up my stuff and move to the frozen north with you.
People here can't even drive in the sunshine much less the snow or rain.
Loven life here in sunny and snow covered ca.

Mike
